  • Laptop Encryption for Security and Compliance: Best Practices for Protecting Mobile Data in the Enterprise

    Encryption of data-at-rest is no longer an optional exercise. Increasingly mobile enterprise data combined with accelerating privacy & data breach legislation is driving significant risks and costs into the loss or theft of sensitive data and personally identifiable information (PII) on laptops and devices attached to those laptops. 

    What are the standards for protecting data-at-rest and how do they apply? What are the available options for encryption and how do they rank? Where does the legislation intersect with the technology? What are the risks and challenges in deploying encryption across an enterprise? What else should you encrypt besides your laptops?

    This interactive presentation will answer these questions and more from the viewpoint of industry analyst and security guru Rich Mogull. Rich will share his unbiased viewpoints and opinions about the endpoint encryption market, drivers and key requirements. Following Rich’s session, Garry McCracken of WinMagic will offer real-world insights, customer deployment scenarios and product information from an encryption software vendor that offers highly-certified government-grade encryption solutions.

    Key takeaways:
    -          Why you really, really should encrypt your laptops (and what else you should encrypt).
    -          What to consider in choosing an encryption solution that is right for you.
    -          Which regulations are relevant and how they apply to encryption technology.
    -          How to approach enterprise deployment to ensure success and compliance.
    -          Where human error can put you at risk with encryption and how to avoid it.

    Garry McCracken has more than 25 years of experience in data communications and information security. He has been responsible for the development of WinMagic's full-disk encryption solutions for desktops, laptops, and PDAs. More recently he has focused on forming partnerships to incorporate new technologies into WinMagic solutions.

    Since 1997, WinMagic has developed enterprise-class, government-grade data security solutions to protect sensitive data and personally identifiable information on laptops, desktops, removable media (CD/DVD/USB), and other endpoints. WinMagic’s solutions are based on open standards like PKCS #11, for flexibility and compatibility. WinMagic has consistently led the market in functionality and certification, including the award of certificate #1 from NIST for support of AES encryption and the first disk encryption solution certified by the NSA for protection of SECRET data.

    The SecureDoc™ product suite includes AES-256 full-disk encryption, multi-platform support, port control, removable media encryption, file/folder & container encryption, centralized control and management (including unparalleled key management capability), and industry-leading pre-boot authentication support including passwords, biometrics, tokens, smartcards, and PKI.
